Southland preview - Thursday, Feb 4th
Welcome to another Thursday program of highly entertaining and exciting greyhound racing at Southland as there are 18 races on tap on the card for your viewing and wagering pleasure. MoneyMaker Mike has several races that stand out and I've listed those below for greyhound fans to check out. Thanks for reading and good luck with your wagers.
Race 2 - 583 yards - Grade M - BELIEVE THAT - 1 box - She appears to have tons of early speed but has been tiring down the stretch as her young career is getting started. I will give her a shot here to get the lead early and hold it for either a win or nice money finish. In 4 of her last 6 races which includes schooling efforts she's drawn the one box and had the lead at the top of the stretch before fading late. She's overdue for a win and it may come here.
Race 7 - 583 yards - Grade A - BORDER CAMPAIGN - 3 box - This hard running greyhound has encountered much trouble as of late in both Grade AA and A yet has still been able to get a 2nd, 3rd and 4th place finish in his last 6 races. Talk about being consistent, in 38 starts he's had 27 top four finishes and I'm not going to overlook him in this race. Don't be surprised to see him give a big effort in this one as I look for him once again to be closing strong down the stretch.
Race 11 - 583 yards - Grade AA - The highlight race of the evening in my opinion as you have CHASMO'S DIESEL - 8 box - going for his 6th straight top 2 finish. In his last 5 races he has 3 wins and 2 second place efforts and I look for him to be right there again challenging for the win despite some strong competition. MEGA NERFETTA - 2 box - who many thought, and deservedly so, should have been on the recently announced ALL - AMERICAN Greyhound team and she will certainly be a threat as will CROWN AND CREST - 5 box - who is going for his 3rd straight win in this top grade race. Even if you are not wagering on this race it will definitely be worth watching.
